Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch Review

Posted on by
Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the original Wii U title. The system didn’t have many shooters so a paintball style where you play as a human/squid using ink based weapons really worked with newcomers to the game. Gameplay From first glance at Splatoon 2, I was shocked. It must be said that I played the first entry for just Continue Reading...

Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy PS4 Review – Platforming meets punishment

Posted on by
Platforming meets punishment. When an aged gamer recounts their gaming story, a reference to ‘the game that started it all’ is anything but a scarcity. Gamers of the early 80’s might tell you their story of arcade flashbacks, and pounding countless shrapnel into a Space Invaders or Ms. Pacman arcade cabinet, or their amazement of being gifted their very first Continue Reading...

Hunting Simulator PlayStation 4 Review

Posted on by
I just don’t get hunting, or at least trophy hunting. There is something about humans with guns shooting animals from a distance whilst unaware that doesn’t sit well with me. Perhaps it is due to me being all about giving a sporting chance. I’d much rather see how the hunter would fair if the animals had lasers attached, or vice Continue Reading...

The Golf Club 2 Xbox One Review

Posted on by
Golf is a hit and miss sport, some love it, some hate it. But for those who do enjoy a game here and there, it is generally a good experience being out in nature working on your technique, others are pure frustration. With the number of sports simulation games, it is great to see one developer and publisher who gives Continue Reading...
